Infection control while travelling: ÖKOPUR® mouth spray shows antiviral effect against coronaviruses

The Delta variant continues to gain ground in this country as well as in popular travel destinations. At the same time, many people are planning their summer holidays and want to make their journey by train or plane, hotel stay, but also visits to the beach and restaurants as carefree and safe as possible, especially in times of Corona. Scientific studies by the University of Innsbruck now show a high antiviral efficacy of the ÖKOPUR® mouth spray, which can significantly reduce the risk of infection wherever large crowds meet and it is difficult to keep a distance and offer additional protection – including when travelling.

Summer, the most popular travel season, attracts many holidaymakers to the south. But especially in countries such as Spain and Portugal, incidences are currently rising due to the rapidly spreading delta variant, which is particularly worrying for those who have not yet received a vaccination. Scientific laboratory tests by the Medical University of Innsbruck in cooperation with the Institute of Hygiene and Microbiology are now focusing on the mouth spray from the company ÖKOPUR® as a proven effective measure for protection against corona infection when travelling. The test results make it clear: The ÖKOPUR® mouth spray kills coronaviruses within one minute. To investigate the antiviral efficacy, different concentrations and independent incubation points were tested. A concentration of 80% caused a 100% reduction in the viral load within 60 seconds. In addition, the mouth spray was recently tested by the University of Innsbruck specifically for the Delta variant – with equally promising results.
